My research interests are centered around decidability and complexity of interaction under partial information. The main aspect is synthesizing winning strategies in games with imperfect information, especially infinite games played on finite graphs. This is closely related to automata theory, especially automata on infinite objects and to graph theory, especially graph complexity measures. Moreover, logics for describing certain aspects of interaction under partial information, like epistemic logics and dependence logics, play an important role.
I am not a formal member of a research group anymore but I'm still interested in scientific topics. If you have any questions or suggestions in connection with my scientific work or my other activities you can contact me at the email address given above.
From November 2011 until April 2013 I have been working within the DFG research project Partielle Information in Logik und Spielen (partial information in logic and games).
